6 Day Western Wonder reviews from past clients of Global Journeys.

“Western Wonder Amazing Itinerary”
- WA, Australia Nov 2017 1 Helpful Vote

We had a fabulous holiday, very pleased with Yvonne from Global Journeys, thank you! It was a good time of year to travel, as we experienced a flurry of snow at Cradle Mountain, and the mountain had snow on it. After the first 2 cold days it warmed up, each day was lovely sunshine.
Fiona and I were impressed at the number of places we visited, even more than we expected. The accommodation was of a very good standard, with heating and electric blankets. Food at the...read more

“A very well organised tour”
- Australia Mar 2014

A very well organised tour; it would have been impossible to cover as much as we did had we done it any other way, than with Global Journeys and Travelmarvel.

“Outstanding tour”
- United States Oct 2013

Barring the inclement weather at Cradle Mountain National Park and at Great Lake, Tasmania, our tour was outstanding. The destinations, accommodations and meals were first class.

“Absolutely enjoyed every minute”
- Australia Oct 2012

My husbands comment the second day 'love it, love it' & he doesnt talk like that. Haha. Everything was amazing. The best was probably the guide & driver - they made everyone feel like family. The information about the places we visited was exactly what we wanted to know. The stops for morning tea, lunch, toilet breaks were timed perfectly....read more

“Loved the whole experience”
- Australia Mar 2011

The tour was really wonderful and we had the good fortune to have perfect weather. Got wonderful pictures of Cradle Mountain. My sister and I even went up on the cable car to the top of The Nut. Very daring for us. The Gorden River cruise was magic. Again beautiful weather. The wilderness tour and visit to Sarah Island was wonderful. We were very interested in the Hydro plant too and the scenery around Queenstown. Very different. The tour guides were excellent, Les and Warren. The accommodation...read more
